A Master class in Trauma Work This Master class in trauma work with Trauma Heart author Judy Crane, and Tom Pecca, focuses on strategies to help people break the Cycle of Trauma using effective, evidence-based strategies. It will be highly practical experience, enabling the opportunity for participants to practice in a simulated environment, exploring what is required of us and the roadblocks that get in the way of helping as a professional and carer. The most important thing is to mirror, model and witness and in that process, we can help to heal attachment disorder. This is a thorough and holistic experience based on dyadic attachment and experiential training. The vital components will include somatic work, therapeutic alliance and trauma brain, underpinned by the attachment trauma model and its connection to trauma work. Participants will be asked to look at attachment styles and how dyadic attachment and the relationship with the individual contributes to the healing process. This in-depth opening into the vigorous modules in trauma training will give participants a greater understanding of what trauma work truly looks and feels like. Master class participants are invited to attend the 2nd day - Body Mind and Spirit Recovery a practical and inspirational event giving additional support to developing insight and networks. This Master class has 6 CPD hours.

Helga will be asking, in what ways are you already good enough? Through exploring this question, she will show how Self -Compassion and acceptance is vital and what it means and how it helps nurture balanced mental health and open to life’s opportunities.

This opportunity will offer an increased knowledge of positive psychology and its methods for good mental health and well-being, and, increased knowledge of self-compassion. Helga’s own personal struggles in her early years were the seed for her journey, today she is an expert in psychological well-being and positive psychology and is a CMA-certified teacher in mindfulness. She teaches positive psychology at the University of Reykjavík, she also works as a counsellor at the Icelandic Mental Health Alliance (Geðhjálp) and delivers seminars mostly for people struggling with addiction, unemployment or other challenges.
